Re: Serotonin syndrome
The authors of this review might have highlighted the patients that are particularly at risk of Serotonin syndrome. This is important as we need as much help as possible to spot unusual iatrogenic illness. Parkinson's disease patients are particularly at risk because they may be taking selegiline or rasagiline (MAO B inhibitors not mentioned in the review) and their depression treated with antidepressants; the unwary might blame their confusion, rigidity and fever on the combination of Parkinson's disease and a chest or urinary tract infection rather than the offending medication.
